EUKARYOTIC CELL

A TYPICAL PLANT CELL

A TYPICAL ANIMAL CELL


DESCRIPTION/FUNCTION:

A.CELL MEMBRANE AND THE FUNCTIONS:

1.CELL MEMBRANE

•Also called the plasma membrane gives mechanical strength to the cell.

•Its unique structure enables itself to serve as molecular traffic regulator.

•It is 5 up to 10 um in thickness. It also exhibits fluid mosaic nature, seal itsef if broken.

B.THE CYTOPLASM AND ITS ORGANELLES

2.CYTOPLASM

•A mass of jelly-like material that is somewhat grayish or colorless, translucent and


viscous

•It can change from semi solid to semi liquid.

C.CELL ORGANELLES

3.ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM

•(ER) is the transport network for molecules targeted for certain modifications and
specific destinations, as compared to molecules that will float freely in the cytoplasm.

•ER has two forms: the rough ER and the smooth ER.
4.RIBOSOMES

•The ribosome is a large complex composed of many molecules, including RNAs and
proteins, and is responsible for processing the genetic instructions carried by an mRNA.

•Ribosomes float freely in the cytoplasm or sometimes bind to another organelle called
the endoplasmic reticulum

5.MITOCHONDRIA

•are self-replicating organelles that occur in various numbers, shapes, and sizes in the
cytoplasm of all eukaryotic cells.

•Mitochondria have two functionally distinct membrane systems separated by a space:


the outer membrane, which surrounds the whole organelle; and the inner membrane,
which is thrown into folds or shelves that project inward. These inward folds are called
cristae.

•Mitochondria play a critical role in generating energy in the eukaryotic cell, and this
process involves a number of complex pathways

6.GOLGI BODIES OR GOLGI APPARATUS

•(also called the golgi apparatus or golgi complex) a flattened, layered, sac-like organelle
that looks like a stack of pancakes and is located near the nucleus. The golgi body
packages proteins and carbohydrates into membrane-bound vesicles for "export" from the
cell.

7.LYSOSOMES

•are often referred to as the garbage disposal system of a cell.

•digest foreign bacteria that invade a cell.

•helping to recycle receptor proteins and other membrane components and degrading
worn out organelles such as mitochondria. Lysosomes can even help repair damage to the
plasma membrane by serving as a membrane patch, sealing the wound.

8.MICROBODIES

•Variety of organelles similar to lysosome but contains different enzymes. One of these is
the glyxoxysomes present in some plant, another is peroxisomes which contain powerful
oxidative enzymes.

9.CYTOSKELETON
•Microtubules that provide support to the internal system of cell thus, it provides support
and shape.

•Also provides pathways for certain cellular molecules to move.

10.VACUOLES

•Membrane- bound, fluid- filled spaces found in both animal and plant cell but bigger in
plant cell.

•The vacuolar membrane is also called tonoplast and they contain liquid cell sap.

11.MICROFILAMENTS

•Are long thread like extremely thin filaments first seen in skeletal muscle cells that
gives the cell a striped appearance.

12.CENTRIOLES

•Small dark bodies located just outside the nucleus of most animal cells.

•They are cylindrical structures and two of them lie close together.

•Associated in the spindle fibers of dividing animal cells.

13.PLASTIDS

•Are cytoplasmic orhanelles found in cells of most plants.

14.NUCLEUS

•It houses the cell's chromosomes and is the place where almost all DNA replication and
RNA synthesis occur.

•The nucleus is spheroid in shape and separated from the cytoplasm by a membrane
called the nuclear envelope.

15.CELL WALL

•a thick, rigid membrane that surrounds a plant cell.

•This layer of cellulose fiber gives the cell most of its support and structure.

•cell wall also bonds with other cell walls to form the structure of the plant.

16.CHLOROPLASTS
•are similar to mitochondria but are found only in plants.

•Chloroplasts convert light energy from the sun into ATP through a process called
photosynthesis.

17.CENTROSOME
•(also called the "microtubule organizing center") a small body located near the nucleus -
it has a dense center and radiating tubules.
•The centrosomes is where microtubules are made. During cell division (mitosis), the
centrosome divides and the two parts move to opposite sides of the dividing cell.

18.GRANUM
•(plural grana) A stack of thylakoid disks within the chloroplast is called a granum.
19.NUCLEOLUS
•an organelle within the nucleus - it is where ribosomal RNA is produced.

PROKARYOTIC CELL

A TYPICAL BACTERIAL CELL

DESCRIPTION/FUNCTION:

1.NUCLEOID

•a nuclear region where the chromosomal matter is found. DNA in the bacterial cell is
generally confined to this central region. Though it isn't bounded by a membrane, it is
visibly distinct from the rest of the cell interior. Prokaryotic cells' genome usually
consists of a single, large, circular DNA molecule

2. RIBOSOMES

•give the cytoplasm of bacteria a granular appearance in electron micrographs. Though


smaller than the ribosomes in eukaryotic cells, these inclusions have a similar function in
translating the genetic message in messenger RNA into the production of peptide
sequences.

3.VESICLES
•relatively small and enclosed compartments, separated from the cytosol by at least one
lipid bilayer. If they have only one lipid bilayer, they are called unilamellar vesicles;
otherwise they are called multilamellar.

4.CAPSULE

•a layer of polysaccharide (sometimes proteins) that protects the bacterial cell and is
often associated with pathogenic bacteria because it serves as a barrier against
phagocytosis by white blood cells.

5.CELL WALL

•is composed of peptidoglycan (polysaccharides + protein), the cell wall maintains the
overall shape of a bacterial cell. The three primary shapes in bacteria are coccus
(spherical), bacillus (rod-shaped) and spirillum (spiral). Mycoplasma are bacteria that
have no cell wall and therefore have no definite shape.

6.PLASMA MEMBRANE

•is a lipid bilayer much like the cytoplasmic (plasma) membrane of other cells. There are
numerous proteins moving within or upon this layer that are primarily responsible for
transport of ions, nutrients and waste across the membrane.

7. PILI

•are hollow, hairlike structures made of protein allow bacteria to attach to other cells. A
specialized pilus, the sex pilus, allows the transfer from one bacterial cell to another. Pili
(sing., pilus) are also called fimbriae (sing., fimbria).

8.FLAGELLA

•The purpose of flagella (sing., flagellum) is motility. Flagella are long appendages
which rotate by means of a "motor" located just under the cytoplasmic membrane.
